IDFA, Members Called on Congress to Pass Financial Rescue Plan

Oct 06, 2008

IDFA was one of the many voices urging the U.S. House of Representatives last Friday to accept the Senate’s version of the $700 billion rescue plan for U.S. financial markets. The House passed the revised version, which was signed into law the same day by President George W. Bush. According to the Washington Post and The New York Times, many lawmakers decided to vote for the bill after receiving thousands of emails and phone calls from a wide variety of constituents, businesses, associations and organizations. IDFA joined 55 other member organizations in sending a joint letter to Congress, asking representatives and senators to act immediately to bring stability to credit markets. IDFA also urged members to contact their representatives to encourage them to support the plan.
